Apple is Blocking the SAM Unlock, Backup Your Unlock Tickets!



sam

Apple is currently in the process of blocking the SAM unlock, reports MuscleNerd. If you need to unlock a SIM or backup your unlock ticket do it now!

MuscleNerd mentions this in Twitter:

Looks like Apple's currently fixing their activation servers. But the good news is that previous tickets gotten via SAM trick still work.

Those who managed to unlock using SAM should save the unlock tickets. To do it just use iFile or iFunbox and save /var/root/Library/Lockdown, or use latest Redsn0w (Extras -> Even more -> backup).

iPhone Dev-Team Updates RedSn0w to Save iPhone Unlock Tickets



redsn0w-0910b8 redsn0w-0910b8-1

The iPhone Dev-Team has updated RedSn0w with the ability to save iPhone unlock tickets (SAM unlock).

redsn0w 0.9.10b8 adds the ability to backup arbitrary directories or files from your device into a zip file on your Mac or PC. The new button is Extras->Even More->Backup and it requires your device to be jailbroken with the afc2 service enabled (most jailbreaks include that). By default it will backup your activation records from /var/root/Library/Lockdown, which is useful for everyone taking advantage of today's SAM unlock using Loktar_Sun's trick

You can download the new version of RedSn0w 0.9.10b8 here.

You can save unlock tickets through Extras -> Even More -> Backup.
